India Pale Ale
Diablo is our flagship IPA, loaded with US hop varieties, dominated by the ‘Citra’ variety. Big tropical flavours & aroma punctuate, mango, lychee & papaya fruits abound, with notes of resinous pine leading to a lasting bitterness. A devilishly good US West Coast inspired IPA.

LazyPyro (1667) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2017
440ml can. Hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma is citrusy, some tropical, also a bit vegetal possibly stale hops. Taste is much better though, zesty citrus fruits galore, pithy bitterness, tropical fruits, light resin and biscuity malt. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel, average carb. Bit of an odd one this, has potential...

Tap. Clear yellow color with white head. Aroma is cheesy, citrusy hops, hints of vomit (old hops?). Taste is citrus, biscuits, more of that old hop parmesan flavour. Medium carbonation. Ok.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Keg at Hop Inn, Newcastle under Lyme. Pours golden. Considering the strength this is very muted. Some peach, citrus etc. Disappointing.

Towey1989 (3324) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2017
Keg at Spout Cafe, Leek. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, some lemon marmalade, slight lime, a hint of pine and subtle pale malts. Taste of orange, lemon, grapefruit, maybe melon, a hint of lime, subtle pine and slight crackery malts. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A long, dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Lots of jellied, citrusy fruits and a long, dry, bitter finish. Crisp and clean too. Very good.

colui72 (1117) - HONG KONG - AUG 27, 2016
Cloudy golden with a huge frothy head. Delicate aroma of tropical fruits and citrus. Taste gets the hops much more intense than its aroma: tropical fruits are strong, and so are hints of citrus and pine. Very fresh and tasty, good summer ale.

MrTipple (6570) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2016
Citrus fruits, some grapefruit, bread and sweet grain malts. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Sweet, overripe fruits, thinking oranges, grassy and floral hops, full bodied, soft carbonation. Beautiful IPA, nice, full-bodied aroma and palate. Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Erzengel (9613) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2016
On cask @ Evening Star, Brighton. Fruity smooth beginning. Hints of sticky floral hops, sweetish body. Round and fresh aftertaste with a grainy sweetness and floral sticky hops.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy pale straw coloured with strong citrus and very bitter pine flavours followed by woody, more pine and grapefruit on the finish. Superb!
